Anna Faris got candid when discussing recent tabloid gossip about her husband Chris Pratt cheating on her with Jennifer Lawrence.
“I had always kind of believed that part of the rumors of celebrity couples were sort of true because they had never been part of my life,” Faris told Us Weekly at the TCA Stars Party Monday. “I was like, ‘Oh, maybe there’s a kernel of truth to that.’ It’s been a little devastating because for us, it’s like, ‘What the heck?’ This has been blindsiding to us. We have an incredible relationship. It has been weirdly stinging.”
Star magazine published a story last month claiming Faris was worried about Pratt starring opposite Lawrence in the upcoming sci-fi flick “Passengers.” The tabloid alleged that after Pratt and Lawrence had dinner to discuss the film, “he hasn’t been able to stop raving about how cool Jen is” and their on-camera chemistry landed them the roles.
“[That] stung a little bit harder than I thought it would,” Faris told Us.
The two married back in 2009 and are parents to son Jack. The “Jurassic World” star has gushed about his wife, saying they purposefully find time for date nights and make the effort for each other.
“I have the support of a strong partner who’s been through this and understands it and whom I can share these experiences with,” he told People magazine in June. “And we have a family that we’re starting that’s the focus of my attention.”
